Flu: If you feel you have contracted a virus, the best way to deal with it is to rest, hydrate, keep warm and treat symptoms as needed with OTC meds. If symptoms persist more than a week see your doctor.

Allergies.: That sounds like allergies. Nasal congestion, runny nose, cough, headache, facial pains and earache can be triggered by fragrances, dust mites (sweeping the floor), grass, trees, pets, environmental molds and such. There are outdoor and indoor allergens. OTC nasal steroid and nasal saline are worth a try. If this doesn't help, visit your doctor to make sure you're not infected.
